The fallopian tube is a vital reproductive organ for women. Hydrosalpinx and fallopian tubal blockage are also common gynecological diseases in women, which will affect normal female pregnancy. So which is more serious, hydrosalpinx or fallopian tube blockage?

Is there any difference between hydrosalpinx and fallopian tube blockage?

The causes are different. People often confuse hydrosalpinx with tubal blockage. In fact, these two diseases are very different. The leading cause of hydrosalpinx is pelvic infection. There are many reasons for tubal blockage, including gynecological inflammation, induced abortion, long-term vaginal bleeding, unclean sex life, etc.

The symptoms are different. The symptoms of hydrosalpinx and tubal blockage are also very different. Patients with hydrosalpinx will have abdominal pain, falling feeling, vaginal secretion symptoms, waist pain, and so on.

The main clinical manifestation of patients with tubal blockage is infertility. In addition, there will be irregular menstruation, abdominal discomfort, dysmenorrhea, increased leucorrhea, increased vaginal secretions, fever, limb weakness, loss of appetite, and so on.

3. The inspection methods are different. The main inspection methods for hydrosalpinx are salpingography, ultrasonic diagnosis, and laparoscopy, while the main inspection methods for tubal obstruction are tubal fluid, hysterosalpingography, salpingoscopy and laparoscopy.

Which is more serious, hydrosalpinx or fallopian tube blockage ?

In terms of etiology, hydrosalpinx is mainly caused by salpingitis or tubal pregnancy. Fallopian tube blockage is caused by infection of various pathogens. It may also be caused by postoperative injury, adhesion, or endometriosis. Therefore, hydrosalpinx is not as severe as a tubal blockage.

In terms of symptoms, patients with hydrosalpinx may have increased menstruation, dysmenorrhea, and lumbosacral pain. However, tubal obstruction has symptoms such as lower abdominal pain or dysmenorrhea, adhesion, increased vaginal secretions, etc. From this point of view, the fallopian tube is still seriously blocked.

Finally, looking at the treatment of the two diseases is also the key to compare their severity. Hydrosalpinx and blockage can easily lead to a difficult pregnancy. It is caused by inflammatory infection. After hydrosalpinx passes through anti-inflammatory, hydrosalpinx absorption will not affect pregnancy.

Fallopian tube blockage is more serious, which is ineffective after fluid dredging treatment. Hysteroscopy and laparoscopy are needed. After treatment, the fallopian tube is unobstructed, which is easy to form ectopic pregnancy. So relatively speaking, the tubal blockage is more severe than hydrosalpinx.

The above is a detailed introduction of which is more serious, hydrosalpinx or tubal blockage. After reading it, you can compare it according to your situation. Whether it is hydrosalpinx or tubal blockage, it may cause the loss of tubal function, resulting in infertility in women.

Therefore, patients need to go to the hospital for relevant examinations, such as B-ultrasound examination, tubal fluid test, and other relevant examination items to understand the specific situation of the body. Doctors will also take corresponding plans for treatment according to different conditions.

Tubal blockage and hydrosalpinx are mostly caused by chronic salpingitis. The treatment is similar and conservative treatment is preferred. Antibiotics can be selected to eliminate inflammation. Patients can also choose the Fuyan Pill, a patent herbal medicine for promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, eliminating symptoms, and improving the chance of natural pregnancy.

If the effect of drug treatment is inadequate, consider surgical treatment. However, it is uncertain whether the operation will restore function of the fallopian tube. If the fallopian tube damage is light, the fallopian tube function can be restored after the procedure, and women can be pregnant naturally. If the function of the fallopian tube has been destroyed and there is no function of transporting fertilized eggs, women can not get pregnant naturally. And they may need IVF.
